LAMBRUSCHI, Furio. Fairy tales, attachment bonds and personal meaning organizations. Psicoperspectivas (Valpso., En línea) [online]. 2009, vol.8, n.1, pp. 112-158. ISSN 0718-6924.
The present article analyzes the different meanings and narrative forms that children from different organizatinos of personal meaning give to fairy tales. The narrative structure of childhood tales (deficit, departure, and happy ending) is primarily analyzed. Following an evolutionary vision in keeping with post-racionalist and attachment theories, evidence is sought on how a fairy tale can have different meanings according to the organization of personal meaning, or how within the same organization, different tales can have similar meanings. Finally, some possible uses that fairy tales can serve within the clinicar practice are outlined.
